This has to be one of my favorite perfumes of all time. It's been around since 1953 and is just so classic and beautiful. It reminds me a lot of the 1930's classic perfume Tabu, but that one has...

My mom used to wear this and I thought it was the most VILE, nose-tickling fragrance around. Fast forward quite a few decades and I have come to love this fragrance, especially for the cold...

I consider myself a fragrance connoisseur. It's a huge passion of mine, and I have a huge collection of over 100 fragrances. They run the gamut from different families of scents. It took me a while...

Youth Dew no longer exists and you will not find it when you get home with your new bottle that looks like the old bottles . No one will warn you that you are buying a weak vapor that will totally...

Estée Lauder Youth Dew is described as a Spicy Resinous Oriental. It is my signature scent for fall and winter. I adore this perfume! I got my first bottle in the mid 70's and wore it while I dated...

Classy, mysterious, oriental magic. My mom and I agree on these points when it comes to describing this amazing perfume. Ps: if you are the type of person who prefers floral and sweet scents this...

I love this mysterious rich fragrance. To me, it says sultry siren, not giggling little girl like so many of the fruity bubbly scents so prominent this decade.

Youth-Dew is the soul food of fragrances. Next to today's watery fruit cocktails and pink-peppercorn pseudo-chypres, it stands like an impressive wall of complex richness. I mean, you have to give...

by far this is the most offensive noxious fragrance ever made. You know that strong overwhelming smell from the old lady in church with the dirty tissues tucked up her sleeve, she is no doubt...

This once great fragrance is now a shadow of its former self - sold in discount chemist stores for 30 bucks or less, reformulated, watered down and tamed. In its heyday it was the quintessential...

SamiDin hit the nail on the head with this one - I actually cringed because I was instantly time-machined to 1983 when I was 10 and my parents were still pretending it was 1973. It is indeed...

so I was by the Estee Lauder fragrance counter, decided to pick this Youth-Dew up and smell the bottle nozzle and it just called out to me. This is such an amazing scent. I have never owned a...

The name Youth Dew is an interesting choice, as there is nothing youthful or dewy about this fragrance. I finally got around to testing this in Boots, I sprayed a good amount on my wrist, and what...

Mixed emotions about Youth Dew. I should say first it DOES NOT work on me, in any way. Not at all. It smells like, for lack of a better word, "dirt." I mean that literal. It smells like...

I can appreciate this fragrance for what it is - intense with that old-world glam charm. It is complex and beautiful, but just too heavy and doesn't suit my chemistry or personality. Very...

A lot of people mention this fragrance in the same sentence as Tabu. I respect others' noses, but I'm not seein' that analogy. Tabu is richer, deeper, more active, warmer, more vibrant, more...

I have a small bottle of vintage bath oil. The smallest single dab of the oil creates a lush, warm, slightly amber herbal skin scent that is somehow also evocative of clean, soapy skin. Soapy but...
